Unknown Pioneers of Logan
The first settlers came to Logan in 1859. With several deaths in 1860, a burial ground was designated at 7th East and 5th North, which was used for six or seven years. As the settlement expanded it was necessary to move the remains to a better location on higher ground and farther away from town. Some bodies were identified and moved to family plots in what became Logan Cemetery. Approximately 42 others, known only to God, having no identification or relatives to claim them, were moved to this special sacred area known as “Pioneer Plot.” This marker has been erected in memory of these unknown pioneers.
